Hi! My name is Gloria Bang and I am excited to join the family at Lighthouse Charter School as the new music teacher!
I was born in Seoul, Korea and came to the states when I was 3. I lived in St. Louis for about 6 years and then moved to Chicago and lived there ever since. I attended the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign where I earned two bachelor’s degree in General Music Education and Piano Performance and taught for 6 years in Champaign, Illinois and Naperville, Illinois. This is my first time teaching at a school in California, and I am very excited about this new phase of my life!
In my spare time, I enjoy watching Netflix, cooking, baking, hiking, traveling, photography, and playing games. But of course, my biggest passion and enjoyment of all is music! And through teaching and meeting the students, I hope to share this wonderful gift with them so that they too can enjoy the amazing things music has to offer. I am looking forward to having a wonderful and melodious year with all the students!
